Considering i am living in a dorm house, it is impossible for me to pet them. Definetely this cafe should be one of the top list must visited. So, last week, i am decided to visit their cafe after working. Lucky me, The location near from my office, its only takes around 15 minutes by motorcycle. I am arrived at House Pika-Pika building. At the hallway, they welcome customer with few cat wall paintings as guarantee that you came at the right place.

At 2nd floor, The decorations influence with japan cafe likes the slippery rack, curtains, small windows, and sliding doors. I am checked out the cake displays-many various cakes like banana cakes, carrot cakes, and etc- and not to mention their trademark cupcakes shapes like kitty. All meals start from IDR 18 K- 150 K ( $ 1 - $ 11). If you want have experience feed them , they provided cat snack only in IDR 25 / $ 1,8. I am paid enterance fee (IDR 55 K / $ 3,9) for one hours not include free meals/drink :( . The waiters asked me to used slippery and brief some rules likes prohibited used straws, pen, or paper while your playing with them, no picking up without staff supervision, and no flash when your taking pictures. It can caused annoyed or shocked for cats. Ok, Noted !!!.

My first impression of the playroom , It`s perfect and cozy place. The room is cool enough, clean, odorless, and the lighting is bright. There`s 6 table seating and each table be equipped 4 round container to puts the plastic cups drinks. At edutaintment corner, you can found Big screen tv , bookcase, and posters. At the centre, It has 2 huge cat house and each of it be equipped scratching post. Yes, you know that cat hunger to stratch. If those furry need `me time`, you can check out their room that has made from wooden square box and few pillow. Do not distrub them when they decided to stayed there,it means the sleeping beauty time. If you desperately need their attention, go grabbed some toys and made they catch of it. To me, never boring saw their hunted behaviors. Cats loves height so much, so dont be suprised if they climbed all to wooden stairs in every side of the right wall. i thought their enjoy look down the kingdom terittory or just thinking how good or bad day they had :D. For the daily routine or i called “duty call” spot, there`s food, bowl, and litter box.

At that moment, i harldy to resist not to smiled and laughed with his looks (not to mention his sharp eyes and fierce look). When i takes a sit, his eyes still followed me!!!.

Her monochrome colours is amazing and thats made me more I am curious about this kind race. But, there`s always for the next day, right?

I am satisfied enough to enjoy the ambiance and perfect place to recharge your energy. Similiar with another pet house like dogs, playing with this cute furry, it will increased your happiness. Its proved by research - According from the huffington post
“Studies show that cat purrs can help lower their owner's stress levels as well as reduce their blood pressure. Additionally, cats can create purr vibrations from 20 to 140 Hertz, a frequency said to be medically helpful for a variety of illnessess if you needed one more reason to scratch behind your kitty's ears! “
Wow, it it one of the solution for any any jakartan (refer as Jakarta people) like me - who trap in busy life and easly to get stressed. Unless, you are a cat phobia, this would be mass terror for you and will be annoying for any kitty lover.
